This month’s cocktail features a spirit you’ve probably never had. Baijiu (pronounced bye-jo) comes from China and has a unique taste, unlike any other spirit. The aromatics have been likened to blue cheese, mushroom, sesame, and more. The first sip will tease your brain—and have you wanting more. In this cocktail, a take on a piña colada, the savory notes of Baijiu marries fruity caramelized pineapple and mangosteen with touches of sesame. A unique taste sensation, to say the least. See the recipe for Sesame Colada, by Orson Salicetti, with this post.
